i just want you to feel free. i want you to always have the wind to your back. i want it to be easy for you to relax. let your mind fade to black. you’re sitting stoned on the bare mattress on your floor. listening to new music discovered weekly. finding songs you love so much you listen to them throughout the day on repeat. adventuring through fields of gold. sunsets chased with just you and the seagulls. tides rise to remind you what we really are inside. just like the ocean. built up by salt and water. you deserve love. the real deal you were always promised. wedding bells and rice. smiling big from under that wedding altar.
1. Street Fighting Man - The Rolling Stones
Well, what can a poor boy do? Except to sing for a rock ‘n’ roll band. 'Cause in sleepy London town. There’s just no place for a street fighting man.
2. All I Could Do Was Cry - Etta James
Yeah and now the wedding’s over.
Rice, rice has been thrown over their heads.
For them life has just begun,
But mine is at an end.
3. Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie
So where were the spiders, while the fly tried to break our balls? With just the beer light to guide us. So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?
4. Neon River - Keane
She said the neon on the river will light my way. And everything that we’ve been dreaming of making real one day
5. Memory Motel - The Rolling Stones
We spent a lonely night at the Memory Motel.
It’s on the ocean, I guess you know it well.
It took a starry night to steal my breath away.
6. See It So Clear - Tom Chaplin
But all these solid certainties,
They had sadness underneath.
And all these happy memories,
They have spaces in between.
7. We Had It All - The Rolling Stones I know that we can never lives these times again. So I’ll let these dreams take me back to where we’ve been. Then I stay there with you just as long as I can.
8. Mannish Boy - Muddy Waters
Everything gonna be alright this mornin’ Now, when I was a young boy At the age of five, My mother said I was gonna be, The greatest man alive. But now I’m a man, I’m age twenty-one. I want you to believe me, honey, We having lots of fun.
9.Goodnight Irene - Lead Belly
Some times I take a great notion,
To jump in the river and drown.
Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight.
Goodnight Irene, Goodnight Irene.
I’ll see you in my dreams.
where yeah, he promised that “of course i won’t cry, love. i’m a man.” but he’s standing there sniffling at the alter. where you make him laugh as he stands in front of everyone, and he hears titters of amusement behind his back while he clutches your hands and kisses you cheek gently. where his kisses taste of sweet champagne, and his tux gets progressively less-buttoned with every round of shots he orders for the boys. where he can’t stop twirling your fingers in his, and he presses the cool curve of his nose to the underside of your jaw, murmuring a simple, “mrs. styles” and where at the end of it all, he’s tipsy and giggling, spewing out random wedding facts such as “you really shouldn’t throw rice at weddings love, pigeons can’t digest it”
